THE Hong Kong Triathlon Association (HKTA) named only two senior triathletes - Con O'Kelly and Wan Shu-wah - in their eight-strong squad for next month's World Olympic Triathlon Championships in Cancun, Mexico. The association is putting more emphasis on the development of budding young triathletes and picked six highly promising teenagers who should benefit from the exposure to the top-class event. Former Asian junior champion Brian Bozarth will lead the territory's challenge in the junior elite (under-19) category in which Hong Kong's other entry is Daniel Lee Che-wo. United States-based Bozarth is considered a leading contender for top honours following a string of commendable results in international races during the summer. He has been invited to join top Australian professional Miles Stewart's Elite Training Group in Australia to prepare for Cancun. Only the leading Australian triathletes and those juniors performing well at professional level have been drafted in for the former world champion's training camp. Eighteen-year-old Lee is also expected to give a good account of himself in Cancun, having shown improvement with every race and is the current leading junior on the Asian triathlon circuit. The HKTA has selected three boys for the 15 and under division - James Endicott, Albert Hau Yuen-cheong and Winky Li Shu-lam. 'It was difficult picking the younger boys' team because we have a number of very promising kids whose standard is so close,' said Ruth Hunt, the HKTA's director of coaching. 'James and Albert are slightly ahead of the rest and there is very little between Winky, Kevin Lam [Ka-kin], James Chow [How-kai] and Mark Bailey. We took into account of the results in China, Macau and the Everyman Triathlon for the final selection.' The only female in the Hong Kong squad is 18-year-old Jill Fung Ka-man, who would be coming in the women's junior elite division.
